    As the digital life era arrives, more and more consumer demand for high-resolution multimedia. Limited by the transfer rate specifications, USB2.0 no longer can handle HD media processing. With this year’s kick off of USB3, Team Group Inc. released three mainstream energy-saving USB3.0 flash drives with ultra transfer speed to satisfy the consumer’s need for HD media files process.

    C101: Easy to use, never lose the cap
    The surface was designed with link format matte etching; the push-and-pull extending design solves the cap-losing problem once and for all. It is the number one choice for busy workers.

    Color Turn: Color rotation, fun and fashionable
    The traditional design color rotation drive’s surface has a silver satin finish to avoid fingerprints; the ergonomic rotation mechanism makes it easy to store. It is a favorite among students.

    F108: The lightest in the industry
    The compact colorful flash drive sports metal sandblasting and anodizing; it is currently the most compact USB3.0 flash drive available on the market.

    Compared to USB 2.0’s 480Mbps transfer rate, USB 3.0 bandwidth reaches as high as 5 Gbps, which is ten times that of USB2.0. Transferring a 20GB high-resolution video will only take less than 7 minutes, created convenience for user to carry and share HD videos. Team Group Inc. tailor three practical and beautiful USB3.0 flash drives to variety of users. Provide capacity choices from 8GB to 32GB, and added green energy-saving modes. With leading the industry lightest design, Team Group’s USB 3.0’s ultra speed performance and consumer friendly price can let consumer smoothly enjoy their HD media experience.

    I thought USB 3.0 is 10 times faster than USB 2.0
    so I guess Team USB 2.0 flash drives currentyly holds up 5.4mbps read and 1.5-3.0 write speed.
    10 times slower than these flash drives :shadedshu

    IMHO, Team Group has been nothing but a disappointment with everything they have released in recent times. I remember when they "wrote the book" on having THE BEST ddr 1 memory modules that would overclock to the moon. Everything they release seems to be a dud now. What happened?

    most USB 3 drives are combersome... If the price is at the cheap USB 2 prices, this is a very interesting buy, as it is faster than USB 2 drives

    I never found USB flash drives particularly heavy. Did anyone else? "OMG, that flash drive in my pocket is really really heavy! I wish they made lighter ones!". No, of course not. Smaller, faster, or less bulky, snap and sit-proof, clear USB slot orientation, keyring hole on the drive, not the cap. Good things. But I have never wanted for a lighter flash drive because I found them too heavy.
